3241Baird, Campbell, Bowlen, Boleyn, Obst...
- Feb 1, 2000Grandfather, William Marion Obst, born 3/1892 in
Newcombe, Campbell Co., TN married approx 1918 (in RI?)to
Rosemary Campbell, born aprox 1898 in Armagh Co., Ireland.
Five children, Rosemary born 1919 in TN or KY, William
born 1920 in TN, Mary Elizabeth born 1923 in KY,
Joseph born 1925 in KY or PA and Theresa born approx
1928 in Phila.<br><br>Rosemary Campbell died about
1929; Wm. put four older children in Catholic orphanage
and baby, Theresa was raised by an Aunt, Mary Fox.
Wm. later married Delia (Bridget) Concannon of
Ireland around 1932 and had 2 add'l children, Dorothy
born 1934 and John born 1944/45, both in Phila.
William died in PA in 1958 & is buried at Veteran's
cemetery in Beverly, NJ<br><br>Believe Wm. may come from
line of Joseph Beard and Hannah Gibson Lay; possibly
through Samuel Crittenden Baird and his son Lewis. Cannot
confirm this data. Believe William had four brothers and
a sister; one brother may have been the president
of a college. Family tale that they were related to
Anne Boleyn (Bowlin, Bolin? may be inter-related with
Bairds in this area). <br><br>Any information would be
appreciated. <br><br>Also researching surnames OBST, SZEWCZAK,
KRULIKOWSKI, SPANE, MC CLOSKEY, MARTINI, LAWRENCE.
